Compensation for accidental injuries whilst performing dental surgery

Providing that you clean your teeth twice a day and floss as you should, hopefully you will never have to undergo any type of dental surgery throughout your life, but unfortunately this is not always the case. In some situations either though your own negligence or through an accident you may require dental surgery and if this is the case it can be quite a serious operation in an often delicate area.

Dental surgeons are usually highly trained professionals who in general perform many operations successfully, but sometimes this is not the case. If you have been the victim of negligence during dental surgery then you could consider making a compensation claim against your dental surgeon to cover any financial damages that you have incurred as a result of this situation.

IF I SUFFER FROM NEGLIGENCE DURING DENTAL SURGERY, WHO COULD I CLAIM AGAINST?

In general there are two main people who can be responsible for injuries sustained this way and this is usually either your dental surgeon or a dental assistant. If a dental assistant has not properly sterilised the equipment or does not provide the appropriate equipment during surgery and you are left with injuries, you could make a claim. In addition if you feel that it was your dental surgeon who was negligent towards during the surgery then that’s who you may consider making a compensation claim against.

CAN I SUFFER HEALTH PROBLEMS AS A RESULT OF THIS NEGLIGENCE?

If you have suffered an injury during dental surgery then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. Some examples of where this situation might occur include:

  • Accidents caused by unsterilized equipment
  • Infections which occur from poor stitching
  • Extraction of the wrong tooth
  • Claims for a failed dental procedure
  • Injuries caused by carelessness of a dental surgeon.
